The Sam Isaac show frequently resembles an indie cottage industry. Friends make artwork, do recording, direct music videos and carry clipboards. Perfect strangers sell his CDs. Sam’s part of the bargain is donning an acoustic guitar, a Casio keyboard or occasionally just his own voice and making the music that is at the centre of all of this.
Counting Bright Eyes, The Spinto Band and Ed Harcourt amongst his influences, twenty-year-old Sam grew up in the sleepy town of Malvern in the West Midlands before moving to East London in 2005. Having self-released two mini albums, both of which recieved glowing reviews and national radio play, April saw Sam Isaac releasing a split 10" with Luke Leighfield on Mannequin Republic - the new label of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly's Sam Duckworth. He has recently done sessions on Janice Long's Radio 2 show, Huw Stephens' Radio 1 show and John Kennedy's Xfm show and has been played by Zane Lowe and Steve Lamacq on Radio 1. Sam has spent the summer touring UK festivals, including Wireless, Glastonbury, Truck and Latitude.
